Per Paladins website, the 1257 is clearly a 2-level 1/4" x 1/4" stripper, preset for RG-6. I assume they re just using a common body for the 4 models in this Econo line, hence the *missing* 3rd blade. If you want a 3-level stripper for RG-6, look elsewhere.
In testing this on a scrap of Chinese-made Radio Shack RG6, the blade depth settings were precisely on target. No nicking at all of the center conductor or the shielding.
Since I m forced to also have to deal with legacy RG59 junk, I ll have to buy a second one and adjust it for the 59. I don t want to have to waste time going back and forth on the settings.
Minus 1 star for crappy instructions. They say to rotate the tool "clockwise" when in fact it s *counterclockwise. Also not shown is the location of the included adjustment hex key: (bottom of the squeeze handle).
